SONAMBULO

In a feature article from CBR News, creator Rafael Navarro talks about adaptation ambitions for his independent project.

PERSEPOLIS

Superhero Hype has an interview with artist Marjane Satrapi about the animated version of her work, which debuted at the New York Film Festival. “The books were published and there was no idea of making a movie about it,” Satrapi said, “plus I thought always that was the worst idea in the world to make a movie out of that. I was extremely skeptical. The fact was that suddenly if we had a big toy in our hands, they told me, ‘Oh, you can make the movie you want.’ I said I wanted to make it with my best friend, ‘Okay, okay.’ I want it to be in black and white, ‘Okay,’ I want it to be hand-made, ‘Yeah,’ I want to have it in Paris, ‘Okay.’ So you know, all of that was there, and how many times do they propose you things like that in your life? So we said, ‘Yes,’ without knowing what we were saying ‘yes’ to, and we realized afterwards the amount of work that (it would require). We were really unconscious actually when we started, and probably that was the thing that helped us a lot, because when you’re completely naive and you don’t know where you’re going, you know all the codes that are solid in the eyes of the other, you don’t know any of these things, so you go and you say, ‘I want to do like that,’ and people look at you with big eyes like, ‘This is impossible.’ And you say, ‘Oh, no, we can do it,’ and then they make it happen, but that was a good thing because we were not professional.”

SMALLVILLE

TV.com has another interview with actresses Kristen Kreuk and Allison Mack about their work on the show and their new college student-themed website project. “Kristin and I are working together more than we’ve ever worked together before,” Mack said, “and we’re spending some time working with Laura, who plays Supergirl. So, you’re going to see three chicks running around taking care of business, which is a first for Smallville.”

WANTED

Morgan Freeman is quoted at Sci Fi Wire saying that he was most interested in working with the talent involved. “I didn’t see it or read it,” Freeman said of the original source material. “But reading the script, it’s like, ‘What? I have got to find out how this works.’ [Director Timur Bekmambetov is] very quiet, and he has interesting ideas. It was just interesting to do. The highlight, however, for me was Angelina. She was one of my operatives, and I enjoyed her.”

GATCHAMAN

IESB has a first look at some of the images from the animated feature.

WGA STRIKE WATCH: DAY FORTY-FIVE

The rain has come to southern California, and a slow down of news is not a good sign. On the late night side, it’s being reported that Jimmy Kimmel will return to the airwaves January 2nd, like his competitors Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien, without WGA writers. “Though it makes me sick to do so without my writers, there are more than a hundred people whose financial well-being depends on our show,” Kimmel, a Writers Guild of America member, said in a statement Tuesday.

Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that David Letterman’s production company is still negotiation with the WGA for a separate deal, aiming on not returning without WGA support.

United Hollywood has an interesting posting about the guild talking directly to advertisers and ad buyers and reported a successful meeting, with the money men saying that it was “irresponsible on the part of the networks not to settle this dispute immediately.” They even quoted another article from journalist Jack Myers saying “The strike is a huge issue for advertisers. It seems like the networks are intent on burning their own house. And ours! Not only that, but it also appears that the industry press, and of course the news channels, won’t cover the writers’ side fairly because of politics. They [The Writers] are now talking to people like me because they want us to know how dire the situation is.”

This goes alongside writers skipping the networks and studios and doing their work independently.

Finally, the AMPTP posted a humorous slam on their website to which United Hollywood posted a response.

TRUST IS THE BIGGEST LIABILITY OF ALL

We can’t do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos — they’re all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, “What do you mean your sister’s dating somebody who works for Miles Millar?” The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web’s rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we’ve got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and [tagline redacted until the WGA strike is resolved].
